Data Compression in Cloud Hosting
The cloud web hosting platform where your cloud hosting account is created works by using the cutting-edge ZFS file system. The LZ4 compression method which the latter employs is superior in lots of aspects, and not only does it compress info better than any compression method which a variety of other file systems use, but it's also a lot faster. The benefits will be significant especially on compressible content which includes website files. Even though it could sound unreasonable, uncompressing data with LZ4 is faster than reading uncompressed info from a hard disk, so the performance of each and every site hosted on our servers shall be better. The better and faster compression rates also make it possible for us to make a large number of daily backups of the entire content in each hosting account, so if you delete something by accident, the last backup that we have won't be more than several hours old. This is possible as the backups take considerably less space and their generation is fast enough, to not affect the performance of the servers.
Data Compression in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Your semi-dedicated hosting account will be created on a cloud platform which is run on the cutting-edge ZFS file system. The aforementioned uses a compression algorithm known as LZ4, that is much better than all the other algorithms when it comes to compression ratio and speed. The gain is apparent particularly when data is being uncompressed and not only is LZ4 quicker than other algorithms, but it is also quicker in uncompressing data than a system is in reading from a hard disk. Because of this sites running on a platform which employs LZ4 compression perform better as the algorithm is most efficient when it processes compressible data i.e. website content. An additional advantage of using LZ4 is that the backups of the semi-dedicated accounts which we keep take a lot less space and are generated a lot faster, which enables us to store several daily backups of all your files and databases.
